Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP announced that on September 10, 2014, it filed a securities class action lawsuit on behalf of its client Town of Davie Police Pension Plan against CommVault Systems, Inc. and certain of its senior executives. The action, which is captioned Town of Davie Police Pension Plan v. CommVault Systems, Inc., et al., No. 3:14-cv-05628 (D.N.J.), asserts claims under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 15 U.S.C. ---- 78j(b) and 78t(a), and SEC Rule 10b-5 promulgated there under, 17 C.F.R. -- 240.10b-5, on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the company's common stock during the period from May 15, 2013 and April 24, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period"). As alleged in the Complaint, Defendants misrepresented the company's revenue growth by booking and subsequently recognizing deferred software licensing revenue to mask slowing revenue growth, while at the same time denying that revenue growth was in fact decelerating. The Company also misrepresented that it was increasing investments in its sales force and hiring more sales employees in order to continue to drive growth through fiscal year 2014 and beyond. As a result of these misrepresentations, the company stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period.
